What? Popular only lasted two seasons? I could swear it was a WB staple that lasted longer than that.
Two years ago, Allie Brosh took a hiatus from her web comic Hyperbole and a Half due to depression. She announced it to her readers in a post called Adventures in Depression. Today she returned with a “comic” called Depression Part 2. It’s really good, and unlike other descriptions of depression that I’ve read (which, for me, have usually been filtered by the writing of a psychiatrist (I’m a psych book junkie.)) (n.b. I have never felt like this, so please, don’t worry.)
wow wow wow i was just about to post about brosh returning but tumblr human monkfishjowls did a really good job of articulating it. as a person who has and struggles with similar issues, this really hit home and i continue to be crazy impressed by Allie and hyperbole and a half.
“I’ve always wanted to not give a fuck. While crying helplessly into my pillow for no good reason, I would often fantasize that maybe someday I could be one of those stoic badasses whose emotions are mostly comprised of rock music and not being afraid of things. And finally - finally - after a lifetime of feelings and anxiety and more feelings, I didn’t have any feelings left. I had spent my last feeling being disappointed that I couldn’t rent Jumanji.
I felt invincible.”

WORTH THE WAIT Time magazine, NASA and the US Geological Survey have collaborated on something truly awesome, sifting through trillions of LANDSAT satellite images, culled from the past 30 years, to create “the world’s first multi-decade animated timelapse of the Earth.” Click on the image for the complete series; you will be blown away.
“A Thousand Words” - spoken word by Jason Chu
And we judge them saying they’re just playing a greedy and self-centered game
Not seeing behind them the stories with which they came
The villages they left, little sisters they couldn’t save
Traditions that they lost, the homes they gave away
In the hopes that their children would not go hungry to their graves
